He has led the Marauder basketball program to much success.  Greg posts an overall record of 247 wins to 122 losses.  The team earned Delta River League Championships in 2003, 2006, and 2007.  He also led his program to Sac-Joaquin Section titles in 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2012.  The team finished as section runner-up in 2003, 2011, and 2012.

  • 2007 – # 6 in the State and # 39 Nationally
  • 2010 – # 28 in the State
  • 2011 – # 10 in the State and # 60 Nationally

Greg’s coaching philosophy is that basketball is not only about learning the game but also using the circumstances that parallel the game to teach life lessons and prepare our athletes for what lies ahead.  He strives to develop each individual to the best of his ability in an attempt to maximize his players’ ability.  Understand that skill can only take you so far-thus strength, toughness, hard work, and preparation, should be easily identified in the character of a Jesuit team.

More Details

Camper Evaluation

Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability. Parents are invited to attend the closing ceremony! Departure immediately following at 12PM.

Camp Meals

Please pack a lunch or bring lunch money. Lunch will be provided Monday-Thursday at an additional cost of  $8 per day. You can purchase a meal plan at check-in. Lunch will include a main item, fruit, cookie, chips, drink. Main items will vary daily: Pizza, Burgers, Burritos, and Sandwiches.The daily lunch menu will be available online in June. Lunch will be served around noon and is separate from the snack bar also offered during the week. The snack bar will take cash or allow each camper to open a pre-paid account so they can buy drinks and snacks during breaks.


Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp. 


We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

My son had a great experience and learned quite a few new things.

We appreciated the skills assessment and felt the feedback was thoughtful and accurate. The head coach set a great tone and the high school counselors were positive and supportive. My son had a great experience and learned quite a few new things. We're glad the players were separated into groups based on skill level, not just by age.

It helped my daughter be confident.

My daughter has never been to a camp and just recently showed interest in basketball. She learned a lot and is looking forward to another. She met new friends too and got a number of the other girl campers her age. It helped her to be out of herself and to be.confident.
